CITB statement: Hudson Contract Ltd


CITB welcomes the unanimous judgment of the Court of Appeal which provides a clear statement of the law.

CITB spokesman Mike Hobday said: “The levy due from Hudson in this case will enable CITB to invest in skills for the future of the construction industry.

“We have for some time invited Hudson to submit a grant claim for any construction-related training that they identify, organise and fund. CITB will of course consider the new claim in accordance with the scheme rules.”

Hudson Contract Services Ltd’s 2019 annual accounts state that it has CITB levy assessments for the financial years 2016, 2017 and 2018 totalling over £27.4m so we fully recognise the significant implications of this issue.
